There are several watches and warnings in effect for the Leeward Islands, which is forecast to feel impacts from Jerry on Friday as the centre of the storm passes over or close by to the islands

 As of their 2pm AST (7pm BST) update, the NHC warned Jerry was “getting stronger” as he tracked through the Atlantic
 Jerry was located approximately 435 miles east of the Leeward Islands and hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 20 miles from the centre

 Spaghetti models for Hurricane Jerry show it passing just north of the Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic
 Despite not hitting Puerto Rico, rainfall may be felt says the NHC. Jerry is expected to produce one to three inches of rainfall, with isolated maximum totals of 4 to 6 inches from Barbuda northwest across St
Marteen/Anguilla into Anegada. Across the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, Jerry is forecast to produce total rainfall accumulations of one to two inches with maximum amounts of three inches
 Swells generated by Jerry are forecast to begin to affect portions of the northern Leeward Islands this afternoon
 These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions
